Never used the P5B-VM. From what I heard, you want to stay away from "VM" boards. (Think Ropey mentioned it, but I'm not sure.)

The Biostar 965PT will be able to do 360x7 easily. I'm betting at least 470.

Locking the PCI-E bus (at 100MHz, not 66MHz) is essential when you overclock.

If a motherboard does not have the option to lock that bus, the bus speed will go up together with the CPU speed. Too high a PCI-E bus will cause all kinds of trouble, up to a fried video card (now, you don't want that...). A good overclocking mobo offers the option to lock the PCI-E bus at 100MHz (the PCI bus should automatically be locked at 33MHz).

PS: Pook, 66MHz is AGP

Yeah i think someone in the thread caught that as well.

It looks like the BIOSTAR I945G-M7 may be the best out of the 3. But can i achieve the 2.5+Ghz with only a 300fsb cap?

David

Ah, well, I knew 66Mhz was something.

300x7 =/= 2.5Ghz.

So no.

Wait... what exactly happened in this thread. Lemme read back...

Ok, you started out with mATX... then I proposed a rig with an ATX case and the BIOSTAR ATX mobo.... and now we're back at mATX????

I strongly recommend the BIOSTAR 965 board over ANY of the mATX boards discussed here....

So do u both know of ANY mATX that can reach that? I really need to use that Dell case to lower the overall cost of all of this.

David
post #48 of 65
Dump the Dell case.... just set up the rig without a case if need be

I seriously would not get mATX.

Again, your total budget is??

$400-450. But less than that would be better. I already got him a dell 20.1" LCD so its $230 right there.

Hes a good bud of mine

Plus it will surprise him more once he turns on the "dell" computer and finds it to be a super fast Core 2 Duo inside

Keep in mind the C2D is plenty fast stock. That said, you said he was a casul user - will he really use much more power than stock?

I know it would be nice to be able to get get that near 1Ghz OC to have a really nice rig, but with $230 of your $450 budget gone, right now, your looking at a somewhat low-end board. C2D E6300 + Biostar 965PT is $260, and a new case would be ~$30. No mATX board I know of is worthy of 350FSB.
